Black First Land First (BLF) will be participating in a land expropriation programe today in Ventersdorp. BLF has declared that all land must be taken back by its rightful owners. The Soweto Land Declaration calls for black people everywhere to form Land Expropriation Committees to take back the land.
Today the Thekiso family will expropriate their land (Klipgat farm) from white farmers which is located north west of Ventersdorp in the Rustenburg district of the North West. It is near the Klerkskraal Police Station. The Thekiso family has instituted a land claim in this respect but the government has instead bought the land and given it back to white farmers to continue the business.
The family explained to BLF that they had been engaging with the government for a possible solution but their efforts have been in vain. There is no way forward coming from the government.
BLF is inspiring our people to defeat fear and take back the land. The racism of Ventersdorp will end only when land has been returned to blacks.
